German Animal Lovers Boycott Wind Power: Vegans Incensed by Bloody Bird & Bat Slaughter

German vegans have mounted a boycott against wind power, incensed by the pointless and bloody slaughter of millions of birds and bats. Irony comes in many sizes and shapes, but the idea of one group of moralising zealots taking on another group of moralising zealots, is simply delicious (so to speak). The concept of carnivorous […]

Highland Habitat Destruction: Scots Wild About Wind Farms Wiping Out Endangered Wildcats

  For the modern eco-zealot green hypocrisy knows no limit. A generation back, eco-warriors would go to war over the slaughter of a few furry seals and the odd, lumbering whale destined for Japanese dinner tables, and would weep for days over the loss of a single oil-soaked cormorant or pelican. These days, those that […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 2: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Ecological Disasters’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and its idyllic countryside has been turned into an industrial wasteland, with its forests, no exception (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered […]

‘Green’ Vandalism: The Mounting Toll of Wind Industry’s Wave of Ecological Destruction

In 2018, it’s easier to find a deluded wind turbine hugger, than an old-fashioned tree hugger. Michael Shellenberger is regarded as one of America’s leading environmental advocates, but his avowed hatred of subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar puts him at odds with his contemporaries. To the extent that carbon dioxide gas concerns him, […]

Germans Rue Wave of ‘Green’ Destruction: Wind Turbines Driving Critters From Natural Habitats

  The wind industry is hypocrisy defined: merrily wrecking the environment under the auspices of ‘saving’ it. Slaughtering millions of birds and bats (and lying about it) is all in a day’s work. In Germany, its eco-zealots are having a harder time than usual, in their dogged efforts to cover up the inevitable environmental destruction […]

Industrialised Landscapes & Battered Communities Drive German Backlash Against Big Wind

Germany’s wind power obsession has turned picture postcard landscapes into alien, industrial war zones – of the kind dreamt up by futurist HG Wells. In the beginning, carpetbaggers, rent seekers and their eco-zealot, shock troops sold the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future as an ecological idyll. Except, the reality has fallen […]

Germany’s ‘Green’ Energy Myth Busted: Landscapes Trashed, Countless Birds & Bats Slaughtered

Wind and sun worshipping eco-zealots don’t hold a monopoly on hypocrisy, but come very close. As nasty as they are sanctimonious, the more active and vociferous members of the wind cult have no difficulty in justifying the destruction of pristine landscapes; the dismemberment of once cohesive, rural communities; the creation of toxic waste lands in […]
